There’s a reason this style has stood the test of time. Chic and simple, it can be upgraded from casual to glam depending on the type of accessories used. Throw in a small bauble to add a bit of flair and whether you’re a bridesmaid or a bride, you’ll look fabulous.


Ballerina Bun

Not just for tutus anymore, the ballerina bun is elegant and beautiful for weddings. With your hair twisted simply atop your head, your neck, shoulders, and accessories shine.


French Twist

French twists can be either messy and effortless or sleek and modern, making them a lovely complement to any wedding ensemble. Perfect for all sorts of hairstyles (even short hair can be twisted), you’re bound to look beautiful while rocking this classic.



Braids are so versatile. You can go with a simple side braid, a french braid, a fishtail, a braided crown and many more options. If you’ll be dancing all night this is the hairstyle for you, as it tends to have extra staying power. Come morning, simply untwist for gorgeous wavy locks.


Half-Up/Half Down

This style looks great on everyone, no matter what your hair type or length. It shows off your radiant face while maintaining a low key vibe. Plus, you can embellish with small braids, curls, or pretty hair pins.

Loose Waves

This is the perfect style for the girl who wants to go with the flow. Beachy and natural, this hairstyle adds a boho-chic vibe to any dress. We think it looks great with strapless dresses, flowy dresses, or anything more simple.



Upgrade your classic pony with volume and curls for a fun hairstyle that’s ready to party all night long. This look is great if you’re getting married on the beach or somewhere else warm, where other styles could go limp but you’ll still be able to get your hair off your neck.


Vintage Waves

You can never go wrong with a retro vibe. Classics are classics for a reason, so if your goal for your wedding day is timeless elegance with a vintage feel, this is the look for you.


Faux Hawk

The perfect up-do for the bride who is a little edgier, this look is great with statement jewelry and a simple dress.


Flower Crown Up-do

Whimsical and beautiful, adding a flower crown to your up-do is a sweet way to add attention to detail when it comes to your hair. From roses and daisies to baby’s breath and peonies, flowers are extra fitting for outdoor weddings.
